People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH) received a $20,000 grant from Santa Barbara County through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

The funding will benefit PSHH’s Supportive Housing Program in Santa Barbara County, which provides free on-site services to PSHH residents.

The supportive housing program currently provides services to some 1,900 households in three counties through free, confidential case management by on-site service providers.

The program also partners with more than 70 area agencies connecting PSHH residents to local resources and area wellness programs. Programs include health screenings, counseling, mental health support, food distribution, rental assistance and wellness seminars.

The grant will provide ongoing programming and support expanded services to PSHH residents in Santa Barbara County.

“We are so grateful for the generous partnership with Santa Barbara County,” said Rick Gulino, PSHH Director of Neighborhood Development and Resident Services. “This new funding will provide our residents with greater independence, access to resources and holistic support through the care of our supportive housing program.”

The CDBG program supports community development activities to build stronger, more resilient communities. To support community development, activities are identified by the county and the public through the development of the annual action plan.

Activities can address needs such as infrastructure, economic development projects, installation of public facilities, community centers, housing rehabilitation, utilities, clearance/acquisition, support services, l assistance to micro-enterprises, application of the code and assistance to owners. Funds are awarded by local jurisdictions across California.
